Atelopus Certus

Palau 2011 2 Dollars Atelopus Certus Silver Coin

Atelopus certus is a species of toad in the Bufonidae family. It is endemic to the Darien Region of Eastern Panama, and its type locality is Cerro Sapo, giving it its common name of the Toad Mountain Harlequin Frog.Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical moist montanes, and rivers.It is threatened primarily by the advancing wave of chytridiomycosis moving through central America, and secondarily by habitat loss, although much of its range falls with in the Darien National Park, a protected area and world heritage site. Because so many other Atelopus species are in steep declines this amphibian is seen as a priority species for ex-situ conservation. In June 2010, a team of conservation partners working under the banner of the Panama Amphibian Rescue and Conservation Project mounted an expedition to the Darien and brought back a founding population of these frogs to begin an ex-situ conservation program at the Summit Municipal Park near Panama City.
